Fokker F-28 Fellowship (FokkerF28 Fellowship) - Dutch short-haul air liner. The joint project of several European aircraft manufacturers. He produced commercially in 1967-1987 in different variations.


Plane Design

The design of the aircraft, launched in 1962 year, attended by several well-known European aircraft manufacturers: Fokker, MBB (Germany), ShortBrothers (United Kingdom), FokkerVFW (Germany). Funding from the government was distributed as follows: the Netherlands, the government has the 50 percent of the share Fokker, and Germany - 60 35 percent of total percent contribution to the project \ Germany..

Short-haul jet aircraft designed to transport 60-65 people on rasstyaonie to 1650 kilometers. Initially planned to install British turbojet BristolSiddeley BS75, then we decided to put the lighter motors RollsRoyce «SpeyJunior», lightweight version of the turbofan RollsRoyce Spey.

F28, new aircraft, in its arrangement was similar in many respects liners BAC1-11 and DC9. The design of the tail was used T-shaped tail, simplified flaps, ailerons, shifted off to the small winglets sweep. The tail section of the aircraft placed two folding adjustable aerodynamic brake.

Distribution of production and development of aircraft parts among the participants of the project was thus: Fokker - internal elements of the wing center section of the fuselage and the nose; MBB / FokkerVFW - tail, front and rear part of the fuselage; Shorts - the outer part of the wing.

Final assembly Fokker-F28 held at the company close to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.


Exploitation. The main variation

The analogue F28-1000 09.05.1967 made the first flight. The aircraft is certified in Germany in the year 1969. Start of regular use of the aircraft - 28.03.1969, Braathens Aviation Company. Cargo variation of this machine called F281000S.

By the year 1971 sproektrovana new variation of the aircraft - F282000 with a seating capacity 79 people (compared with 65 in F281000) and a longer fuselage.

Later we developed a modification F.28 Mk 000 - with a shorter fuselage of a series of 1000, greater range and reinforced structure. The main operator of this series was the airline company Garuda Airlines.

The biggest commercial success was in F284000 modification. Planes of this series began regularly operated with 1976, the aviation company Linjeflyg. The aircraft had a lengthened fuselage and passenger in 85 people. Increased wingspan, changed cab design and fuselage, delivered not as noisy motors Spey 55515H.

Modification F28 Mk6000, which was certified in the year 1975, differed longer fuselage, copied, like the models of 2000 / 4000, large wingspan and the presence of the slats.
